Rhythm Roulette | A$AP P On The Boards
"Hopefully I don't get no bullshit," says A$AP P on the Boards just before tying on the red bandana for the latest edition of Rhythm Roulette. One of the go-to beatsmiths for the A$AP Mob, P on the Boards was the man behind such Mob bangers as "Bath Salt" featuring Flatbush Zombies. His most recent work can be heard on the P on the DRGS project. After roaming blindly through the bins at Academy Records, P came up with Red Crayola's abstract art rock album Malefactor Ade. The Aussie prog rock of Paternoster and QPSM Project featuring David Durah. Not the usual suspects to say the least. After a dab of inspiration, P got down to work. He had high hopes for Red Crayola's "Baby Jesus Frog" based on the title, but revised his opinion post needle drop. He soon found a few suitable loops—ill interstellar outer-space shit, mostly—and got to chopping. Will he achieve his stated goal of cooking up six beats in one session? Only time will tell. "Shouts out to MASS APPEAL for letting me get the opportunity finally," said P in closing, offering a few words of inspiration to up and coming producers: "It went from me watching this shit, to y'all watching this shit now. So keep doin' it!" Check the creative juices flowing up top...
